But the semesters are 12 teaching weeks (with a 1-2 week midsemester break), then one week for swotvac, then three weeks for the exam block (which is cool if you're like me and have only one exam!).

It was too bloody long. For me, I think it's cause I first had my stomach cut open, then my hand. :rolleye:

I love how they give us a week off for swotvac when, let's be honest, absolutely nobody uses it for its intended purpose and just wastes time instead of studying.

The six weeks of this spring semester has felt longer than the entire 16 weeks of the winter.

Yeah, that would do it.

Plus, it did feel abnormally long anyway just due to the silliness of having the "midsemester" Easter break only THREE WEEKS into the semester, followed by a nine week chunk of classes.

There were certain parts of college that I miss, but studying and essays and classes are certainly not part of it.

Yeah, that definitely played a part in it. Although, were you around back when the Commonwealth Games were on? That seriously screwed things over - the holidays were I think 2 or three weeks earlier than normal, so the school term was ridiculously long and the uni term would've been something like 1 week // break // 11 weeks.

Not a free desk in sight. Almost all of them were Asian. I instantly thought of you and your rants about your fellow Asians.
